Meego Day – a Brief Report

Meego Day in Haaga-Helia, (estimated) 250 students filled the auditorium. Experts from Nokia and Accenture lectured for three hours and gave two hours of technical workshops. It’s a bit much to cover, but here are some highlights.
Meego is a Linux distribution for mobile phones. It’s made by Nokia and Intel.

Which Hardware Runs Meego?

Currently, January 2011, it’s good for testing. Here is a list of devices that were demonstrated in the workshops:

  • Nokia n900: Meego boots, if you are lucky. No power management support, so can’t be used as a phone. For updated status of what works, see n900 QA reports.
  • Samsung n10 netbook: a good choice for using it.
  • Asus Eee PC (not sure which model): also a good choice
  • Beagle Board, a 200 EUR prototyping board, with a digital display connector – good for testing

Meego can also run inside Ubuntu Linux using Meego SDK and QEMU. See also Device support in Meego wiki.
